Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesOn this day before a New Moon, it’s best to take a lighter schedule if possible, dear Aries, and find peaceful activities to enjoy. This lunation will occur in your work and health sector, bringing new beginnings and fresh energy to these areas. New plans and projects are on the horizon. Today is ideal for reflecting on what you’d like to change or putting something to rest or behind you. In preparation for the new cycle beginning tomorrow, you might envision goals related to your daily routines and health. Whatever gets you more organized and feeling in charge of your daily life is favored in the week ahead, and it’s best to pace yourself. Watch that you don’t burn out by attempting too much or by setting over-the-top goals for yourself. Especially as the day advances, it’s best to avoid rushing through your work or conversations, as it’s easy to overlook something critical. Judgment may be off just for now.
TaurusTomorrow’s New Moon brings a new creative or romantic direction for you, dear Taurus. Opportunities to awaken talents that have laid dormant and parts of yourself that you were too shy to express are likely to emerge in the coming weeks. Today, take the time to reflect and finish up projects that may interfere with your New Moon goals. Try to take some of the pressure off, as it’s most appropriate to lay low, reflect, revise, and intuit. Brand new beginnings may not come to pass or hold weight. Physical energy may be low, and there can be a tendency now to avoid the “real world.” It’s time to let go rather than build up. As the day advances, watch for a tendency to add too much to your plate. There can be some misleading talk or false leads at this time. You may get all wound up on a mental level, and ideally, some great ideas can come out of the tension.
GeminiNew ways of approaching and improving home and family matters are on the horizon, dear Gemini, with a New Moon occurring in your solar fourth house tomorrow. It’s best to avoid major decision-making if possible for a few days, saving them for when you’re more objective. However, use the energy of this lunation for motivation to take charge of your personal life. Getting things in order at home can have a wonderfully positive effect across the board. Today is useful for tying up loose ends or winding down. Conserve your energy as much as possible, or invest energy in the moment. As the day advances, you might jump upon a new idea and forget about the practical details required for its realization. It’s better to stretch your mind while keeping your feet on the ground. Great ideas usually go through many transformations before reaching their potential.
CancerWith a New Moon occurring in your solar third house tomorrow, dear Cancer, new energy comes into your life for connecting, communicating, and learning. The Moon is Balsamic all day today, suggesting that it’s a good time for reflection rather than taking action on new things. However, it’s an ideal time to bring something to completion or end a bad habit or negative train of thought. New interests and directions are on the horizon, and letting go or reflecting makes sense now. You might also consider envisioning or imagining what you’d like to improve and change in the upcoming cycle, but do yourself a favor and find the time to catch your breath today. You might feel a little in the dark and wish for clarity, but letting time tell and doing your best to avoid going to extremes serves you best. Ideas are big and easy to come by, but they’re hard to bring home.
LeoIt may best to avoid all-new endeavors today, dear Leo, as it’s the day before the New Moon, and it’s better to finish or end things with the waning Moon. It’s a natural end of a cycle in which new projects are best set aside in preparation for new beginnings to come. Examine insecurities if they arise, as some self-understanding can put you in a stronger position as you head into a new cycle. While it’s best to avoid final, important decisions or take on new ventures today, it can be helpful to review recent developments. Try not to allow yourself to feel pressured to make snap decisions. You’ll learn more if you relax and observe rather than push, prod, and full-on investigate a matter, as this is a transitional day.
VirgoThe Moon is Balsamic today, and this phase of the Moon turns us inward for valuable lessons, dear Virgo. On this day before a New Moon in your sign, it’s a time to review matters, reflect, and tap into your intuition–not to push forward with new endeavors. If you need to let go of a bad attitude or habit, now is a good time. The upcoming period is about reshaping your image if it needs some tweaks. Today is excellent for seeing which fears may have been holding you back from pursuing your dreams. Do what you can to reflect and muse about what you want for yourself. It’s wise to concentrate on finishing things up rather than beginning new things. Make a point of entering the new cycle stronger and wiser. The ordinary may not satisfy just for now, which can encourage you to stretch your mind to entertain new possibilities.
LibraTomorrow’s New Moon might motivate you to close projects, put an end to unfinished business, or get closure on matters that have left you wondering in the weeks ahead, dear Libra. Today, it’s important not to jump into something new, and it’s best not to keep yourself so busy that you have little time to reflect. It’s a good time to explore your ideas and your inventive side as well as consider ways to wind down. The Moon is Balsamic today, suggesting that it’s a better time for reflection than innovation. You are unlikely to follow through on endeavors begun now. Your private life lights up in the coming week, and you might want to aim to enjoy some anonymity before the Sun enters your sign next week. Signs today point to the need to slow down, take stock, reflect, and release. Try to enjoy the exercise of thinking up possibilities, but don’t bank on them until you’ve had more time to sort out the practical side.
ScorpioOn this day before the New Moon, dear Scorpio, aim to think and process rather than push ahead with all-new endeavors. This is a time for reflecting rather than jumping into action. In fact, in the coming days and weeks, your interests are likely to change. You’re moving in a new direction with less concern about your performance and status and more interest in your personal happiness and the people around you. Today, the Moon is Balsamic, and it’s best to tie up loose ends or conserve your energy. There can be a satisfying feeling of letting go as you release recent negative attachments or attitudes. It’s not a good day to make new plans, as the information available to you now is incomplete. It’s a good time for positive thinking, but the details may not get their due attention.
SagittariusOn this day before the New Moon, dear Sagittarius, it’s best to think about what needs to end or attitudes that should be left behind rather than beginning all-new endeavors. Tomorrow’s New Moon brings a fresh start with responsibilities, work, life path, or reputation. Today, it’s wise to let go, reminisce, reflect, and participate in activities that help you clear your mind rather than attempt to push ahead. After all, new initiatives begun today are unlikely to amount to much, if anything at all. Take time to catch your breath. It’s particularly appropriate to wind down rather than wind yourself up today. Freeing yourself of excess baggage is a good idea to clear the way for new beginnings. Reflection on recent events and processing of feelings can come in handy now.
CapricornTomorrow’s New Moon can help you rise above small problems in the coming weeks, dear Capricorn, as it falls in your spirit sector. Because the Moon is Balsamic today, it’s a time for letting go rather than revving up. It’s more appropriate to tie up loose ends and process recent events than to charge ahead with new plans during this Moon phase. Pay attention to random feelings and thoughts today, as the period ahead is one of self-improvement through extending yourself beyond your normal routine. Opportunities to learn or try new things can emerge. Clear your mind of things that can’t or shouldn’t be changed today, and think about ways to truly improve your life. Aim to squeeze in time to process and reflect rather than push yourself. Especially later today, avoid sweeping decisions that come on suddenly and impulsively. It’s important to simplify as you can be juggling far too much right now.
AquariusThe Moon in its Balsamic phase today, dear Aquarius, with a New Moon occurring tomorrow. The New Moon can act to shift your interests, attention, and primary focus. It’s better to reflect than to take action right now during this transition. Just as the Moon is dark in the sky, you may not be seeing your next move. It’s a good time for tying up loose ends, meditating and reflecting on recent events, and letting go of things that have run their course. Pay attention to your intuition about relationships, but aim to act on your insights later when more details emerge. You might have had enough of a bad habit, addiction, or superstition, and in the weeks ahead, you are motivated to end it. It’s a time to rid yourself of burdens or share their weight. As the day progresses, the truth is too easily stretched, and it can be frustrating for you to witness. It’s better not to push or promise something too soon.
PiscesConsider ways to improve, enhance, and enjoy current relationships today, dear Pisces. Watch for impulsive actions today, but consider anything revealed in the heat of the moment, since it can be important. New information could arrive now that affects your closest relationships. Take in now, and take action when it feels right. The day is good for tying up loose ends. It’s best not to launch new projects or to make commitments and promises. Tomorrow’s New Moon brings a new direction in a relationship, whether with a partner or an enemy! Conflict resolution will be in focus in the weeks ahead. Today is superb for releasing tension and letting go of grudges. The Balsamic Moon encourages you to slow down, reminisce, and reflect rather than initiate. As the day advances, watch that you don’t miss important, practical details or focus on things that don’t truly matter in the long run. There is some tendency to make mountains out of molehills.
